How to Decorate a Cake with Edible Markers

Cover the cake with fondant. Take the cake out of the refrigerator and place on a cake turntable, if you have one. If it seems dry, mist it with some water so the fondant will stick to the icing. Gently roll the fondant round onto the rolling pin, then unroll it onto the cake, doing your best to center it. Smooth the top and the sides, slightly unfolding the folded extra fondant on the sides (it will be draped like cloth). Once the fondant is smooth, cut off the excess at the bottom with kitchen shears or a knife. Let sit and dry for a little bit if you have the time.
